Are you really sure, the board hangs?  Maybe the kernel runs but has
no console to output its messages.  Try appending "console=<whatever>"
to bootargs.


Once the  implementation is  up and running,  it is still a trick to keep it
running.  In a normal,  closed implementation,  this is not a problem;  in a
system with metaobject protocols [..] there is the potential for spectacular
failure modes if certain situations are not properly anticipated.
